DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Thursday marked the third time Crime Stoppers cleaned off graffiti from Nickels Bakery warehouse on Pritz Avenue.
Officials with Crime Stoppers say the building’s natural brick structure makes it a target for area taggers.
They use a product called Elephant Snot to remove the markings, and say the process is a tedious one.
“It’s over a thousand dollars to clean up something that probably cost this dude..I don’t know how much a can of spray paint costs, and a few minutes of his time, to tag the wall,” says Zachariah Hastings with Miami Valley Crime Stoppers.
The Crime Stoppers organization has helped with more than a dozen graffiti cleanups since the group formed.
